Preschool Programs

Enhance your preschool program by offering science education at your school. Once a month, enjoy a visit from an Oak Knoll teacher-naturalist, who will bring the wonder of the natural world to your classroom with a different theme such as butterflies, bats, owls, bugs and seeds. These programs provide wonderful learning opportunities for your preschool students. The programs are a mix of hands-on activities, experiments, songs, demonstrations, stories and nature walks. Our programs are specially designed to strengthen listening and observation skills while teaching students about the natural world.
